Over the past decade, there has been increasing interest in the study of solitons in magnetic chains. Motivation for this interest has come from the beautiful neutron scattering studies of CSNiF3 by Steiner and Kjems [1] and from the theoretical work by Mikeska and co-workers [2] who mapped the anisotropic Heisenberg chain onto the sine-Gordon equation.
